  • Keyless entry! Stupid Idea!

    As the title says!!!
    After being out this morning in the burg the misses had a hair appointed in the next town so dropped me off at bottom of our street, jumped in driver seat n went for her barnet fix! only when she got there she realised i had the had the key in my pocket and was sitting on the couch playing fifa!
    as luck would have it my friend had just dropped his girl off as the same hairdressers so he got the privilage of driving the burg back to my house with the pressure of if you stall it yer buggered! but good news he got it back n stalled it at back dor, n came in with a big cheesy grin wanting to buy it!

              Yeah but when a car makes a noise or a light pops up women just turn up the radio and start doing lalala so they can pretend its not there...

                i've always thought it would make more sense for engine to cut when out of range instead of just beeping, not the best as a security measure

                  It's all well and good it cutting out until it cuts out whilst they're heading towards the pavement/pedestrians and then lose power steering and brakes etc.....

                      - plus how many threads have there been from people with keyfob problems. Obviously a minority but there's been plenty of them.

                        Padlock symbol does flash on the dash and a bleeping noise happens when key fob is out of range of the car...

                        Most (if not everyone) who has problems with fob is because the battery needed changing...

                          But i prefer the start/stop button nice little touch imo

                            this shouldnt happen EVER unless the batteries are low, if it does then your fob is knackered. mine were like this, had them replaced and its never once done it since and ive noticed it tends to be when the cover isnt tight enough to push against the battery
